“If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

And as far as false hope, there is no such thing. There is only hope or the absence of hope-nothing else. – Patti Davis

Although “you feel tiny in the presence of a huge disease,” it is important not to lose hope, Davis said, noting that “interactions may be smaller, but you can still communicate” with a loved one who has Alzheimer’s.

Davis also criticized the Bush administration – Laura Bush in particular – for saying publicly to “not give Alzheimer’s patients false hope.”

“Hope is not false,” Davis said. “It just takes hope, sometimes just the hope of one person.” – Patti Davis

CAN A SONG FILL YOUR HEART SO QUICKLY & FULLY THAT THE EMOTIONS SPILL OUT OF YOUR EYES?

In ALL ARTICLES, HOPE AND INSPIRATION on April 18, 2009 at 1:36 pm

This song inspired me to create a new category called HOPE AND INSPIRATION.  Don’t watch it without a box of tissues.  I’m not kidding.

I refuse to add anymore words because nothing I could possibly write can hold a candle to Ms Boyle’s voice.  -dg

The Great Debate lyrics

What if someone said
Promise lies ahead
Hopes are high in certain scientific circles
Life won’t have to end
You could walk again

What if someone said
Problems lie ahead
They’ve uncovered something highly controversial
The right to life is strong
Can’t you see it’s wrong

Human kind has reached a turning point
Poised for conflict at ground zero
Ready for a war
Do we look to our unearthly guide
Or to white coat heroes
Searching for a cure

Turn to the light
Don’t be frightened of the shadows it creates
Turn to the light
Turning away would be a terrible mistake

Anarchistic moral vision
Industries of death
Facing violent opposition
Unmolested breaths

Ethic inquisitions breed
Antagonistic views
Right wing sound bite premonitions
A labyrinth of rules

Are you justified
Are you justified
Are you justified
Justified in taking
Life to save life
Taking life to save life
Life to save life

This embryonic clay
Wrapped in fierce debate
Would be thrown away
Or otherwise discarded

Some of us believe
It may hold the key
To treatment of disease
And secrets highly guarded

Are you justified
Are you justified
Are you justified
Life to save life
Justified in taking
Life to save life
Life to save life

Human kind has reached a turning point
Poised for conflict at ground zero
Ready for a war
Do we look to our unearthly guide
Or to white coat heroes
Searching for the cure

Turn to the light
Don’t be frightened of the shadows it creates
Turn to the light
Turning away would be a terrible mistake

We’re reaching
But have we gone too far

Harvesting existence
Only to destroy
Carelessly together
We are sliding

Someone else’s future
Four days frozen still
Someone else’s fate
We are deciding

Miracle potential
Sanctity of life
Faced against each other
We’re divided

Should we push the boundaries
Or should we condemn
Moral guilt and science
Have collided

Turn to the light
We defy our own mortality these days
Turn to the light
Pay attention to the questions we have raised
